It's tough watching video on an IPod. And even a large screen TV doesn't give you that movie theatre experience you would like. ThePersonal Media Theatre converts your IPod, computer, TV, and DVD player into a big screen experience, while you still enjoy the comforts of home. Available fromHammacher Schlemmer for $250.

Gadget Gift Idea 8. The Snore Relief Watch

Cozy, huh? Well, as you know a few loud snores can break this scene up in just a few heave-ho's. The Snore Relief Watch monitors your breathing, with particular attention to the "snore center," sending biofeedback signals to the brain to help quiet and, hopefully, relieve the snoring altogether. Snoring is not just a harmless, noisy activity; it can lead to sleep apnea, a disruption that can lead to heart failure. The Snore Relief Watch is for safety and for sexy. At Amazon.com for $78.95.

Gadget Gift Idea 9. Head Spa Massager

You gotta love anything that looks like this. This space age headset is actually a Head Spa Massager with a variety of massage tools hidden underneath. Bottom line is that they all vibrate and send your scalp tingling and your mind relaxing. I could use one of those right about now! At Amazon for $50.

Gadget Gift Idea 10. The Flying Alarm Clock

C'mon! We all know people who are always late for work and appointments. Who know what they were doing the night before, but they just can't get out of bed, even with 10 one-minute snooze alarms. Well, I'm figuring this Flying Alarm Clock should do it. The sound alarm goes off and so does the flying disc, around and around, until the sleepy-head puts it back on its pedestal. Snooze buttons and a six-button programmer make the Flying Alarm Clock somewhat adjustable to your wakening needs. From Amazon for $40.

Ooh, I'm ready to start shopping!

Not quite...

I'm an over-40 techno geek and with the exception of the girl in the snore relief watch picture, none of these are even close to my "must have" list for this holiday season.

I'm also over 40 (43) and

I'm also over 40 (43) and have absolutely no interest in any of these gadgets, which seem to appeal more to the over 70s (and remind me of the 1970s!).
